Deep-Fried Okara Balls 酥炸豆渣丸

The vegan recipe for Deep-Fried Okara Balls:

servings – 30 okara balls


  • 1 cup soy beans
  • 3/4 cup rice flour

  1. Soak soy beans for 7 hours, remove and place in a blender; add 3 cups of water and pulse until smooth.
  2. Transfer the soy puree to a large piece of muslin or cheesecloth which is laid in a mixing bowl; bring up the sides of the cloth, wrap, twist and squeeze to extract the soy milk (place the soy pulp/okara into another mixing bowl and boil the soy milk to serve as a beverage).
  3. Combine the okara with rice flour, tapioca starch, white pepper powder, salt and water.
  4. Form the mixture into small balls and deep-fry them until golden brown.
  5. Remove, drain and serve.
